Fastmarkets (formerly AMM) selected WENDT CORPORATION as the Scrap Equipment Company of the Year in a virtual presentation of their Global Awards for Steel Excellence. Tom Wendt, President, accepted the award saying, “This award is especially satisfying in such a difficult year with unprecedented volatility due to the virus. Over the years our strength has been in our ability to adapt as markets change and markets change in the scrap industry often. We are unique in that we are big enough for customers to benefit from our infrastructure, scale, and technical depths, yet nimble enough to move quickly and provide solutions to current market challenges.”
WENDT‘s nomination for the award highlighted the development and introduction of a complete emission control solution to keep North American auto shredders in EPA compliance. Wendt noted, “In 2019, one opportunity presented itself at Northern Metals, part of EMR, in Minnesota. They set out to build a large scale, state-of-the-art shredding facility and after investigating all of their options chose WENDT CORP. to design and build their new plant. This led to the development of a completely new emission control solution to keep NMR in strict compliance with the EPA and effectively set a new standard for the scrap recycling industry. This flagship installation is now complete and we believe it to be the most environmentally progressive auto shredding plant ever built.”
WENDT CORPORATION is thankful to our employees, partners, suppliers, and most importantly our customers for making this Scrap Equipment Company of the Year recognition possible. WENDT remains dedicated to developing and delivering the future of scrap processing solutions.
